Default Radiator Cap 15 or 16 lb.

Does it mater if I change out the 15lb cap with a 16lb. My car has a 15lb and the O'Reilly'* guy sold me a 16lb. With it hurt anything?

I don't think it can do any harm. I'm (ASSUMING) the pressure is just a maximum pressure the cap'* construction will allow before it can't hold down the radiator'* pressure anymore. And since i assume all of ours are to work at no more than 15 (since all bonn caps that i know of are 15) you should be ok. As long as it fits.
anyone else?
